It is almost worth a trip across the pond to see Nathan Lane, Andrew Garfield, and Russell Tovey (from HBO's Looking) in a London production of Angels in America. Luckily, for those of us who can't make it, England's superb National Theater will broadcast a performance of both Parts 1 & 2 of the legendary play in US movie theaters this summer. You will not want to miss this fresh production of this timeless masterpiece of American theater.
Part 1 will be broadcast on July 20 with Part 2 a week later on the 27th. "Encore" showings will be in the subsequent months. Stay tuned and YesBroadway will keep you up to date as to showtimes and cinemas when they are announced.
The production also stars Star Wars' James McArdle and is directed by the masterful Marianne Elliot (Curious Incident). But, enough about that...let's just all stare at this production photo of the dreamy Andrew Garfield for a few seconds/minutes/days. We definitely to see that face on a giant movie screen for a few hours this summer!
